Walk Details
This route takes you all through the parkland at Ickworth. There are great views and the landscape varies from open parkland, to pond side rest points and not forgetting the beautiful walled garden.

The further away from the house you get the quieter it is and the more wildlife you can spot. Keep an eye out for birds, lizards, toads, deer and small mammals.

The walled garden is spectacular, especially in summer. It was built in the early 1800s and is peaceful to walk around. The wildflower meadow, veggie beds and school allotments provide lots to look at.
